Multiple Mapped Drives to one Shared Folder
Posted on 2007-07-31
This isn't really a problem per say - as much as a "why would this happen?"
We have a user who keeps getting duplicate mappings of a network drive throughout the day.
Window XP Pro client bound to a Windows 2003 Server on a domain. Mapped drives are not assigned with a login script or by the directory, users are free to map or not as they choose.
When the client boots the Network share folder called "Public" is mapped to the "P" drive. By the end of the day it shows up as "V", "X", etc. Sometimes up to 6 mappings to the same folder.
Running the Net Use /delete * command disconnects them all, but they eventually just show up again.
My first question would be why this would happen, and secondly, how to undo it.
When a user clicks on a share and selects "Map Network Drive" and "Reconnect at logon" where does that info reside should you want to undo it?
Any thoughts welcome. Thanks!
